How Do I Love Thee?

landscape-176602.md.jpg

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Meet or not meet.

You meet me, or not meet me
I’m there
no sorrow or happy

You miss me, or not miss me,
the memory is there,
not coming, not going

You love me, or not love me,
love is there,
can’t be added, can’t be ended

You be with me, or you leave me,
I lay my hand in yours,
never be aparted

Rest in my arms
or
let me go into your mind,
in silence, and in love,
so quiet, and so fascinating
